Police in Medicine Hat are investigating a suspected murder-suicide. They were called to the 100-block of 5th Street S.E. on Friday evening just before 8 PM.

They found a man in medical distress from a gunshot wound. He was taken to Medicine Hat Regional Hospital but later died from his injuries. The victim has been identified as 44 year-old Aaron Matthew EREMENKO of Medicine Hat.

The MHPS Tactical Arrest Control Team was deployed and when they entered the home, they found 54 year-old Donald Wayne NEUFELD, also of Medicine Hat, deceased. It is believed NEUFLELD died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The MHPS Major Crimes Section is investigating the incident. Autopsies on both bodies will be conducted in Calgary on Monday. The Forensics Unit is in the residence today, processing the crime scene.

At this time, investigators believe the motive to be the result of a dispute, as the victim and the deceased suspect were known to each other.
